SAUTER A FAMILIAR FACE AT BAKER CURB RACING

Red Man Racing crew chief Rick Viers guided Sauter to his career victory at Chicagoland in July of 2002

JOHNNY SAUTER ON NASHVILLE SUPERSPEEDWAY
"I'm really excited about the opportunity to drive the Red Man Moist Snuff Ford at Nashville this weekend. Obviously, Greg has been very competitive over the first four races and the team is putting a great product on the track. I drove for Baker Curb Racing when they were based out of Kentucky and experienced some success. Rick Viers was my crew chief at Richard Childress Racing in 2002, so he is familiar with my style and what I like in my setups. I've had a couple runner-up finishes in the Nationwide Series at Nashville, hopefully this weekend I can finally get my hands on that Sam Bass guitar! "

CREW CHIEF RICK VIERS ON NASHVILLE SUPERSPEEDWAY
"We've had a great start to the 2010 season and look forward to continue that success this weekend in Nashville. I worked with Johnny in 2002 and I don't think we'll skip a beat with him in the car. We are taking car 83, which hasn't been on the track this season, but Jason Keller had a top-15 finish with it at Kansas last October. We'll start out with a setup pretty similar to what we were successful with at California and Las Vegas. After Johnny gets a feel for the car, we will make some minor adjustments to suit the car to his liking. It is a special race for Baker Curb Racing being right here in Nashville. I've been chasing that guitar for 10 years and hopefully this will be the year we bring it home!"
